Tony C. Burnett

July 7, 1954 — June 27, 2024

Piedmont, SC

Tony C. Burnett, a cherished husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, passed away at his home on June 27, 2024, at the age of 69. Born on July 7, 1954, in Greenwood, SC, Tony's life was marked by his unwavering dedication to his family, his passion for motorcycles, and his generous spirit.

Tony's journey began as the beloved son of the late Mary Seay and Carlis Burnett. He grew up alongside his siblings, with whom he shared an unbreakable bond. Though he was predeceased by his brothers Billy and Junior Woods, sister Frieda Smith, and his cherished daughter April Burnett, Tony's loving memories continued to be shared with his surviving brothers, Jerry and Frankie Burnett, and sister, Fran Bedenbaugh.

Tony found the love of his life in Kelly Burnett, and together they built a family that was his pride and joy. His legacy lives on through his children: son Tony Lee Burnett, daughters Haley Burnett and Christina Emanuele, and his adored grandchildren Chanse Moon, Christian Smith, Dayton Burnett, and Taylor Burnett. Each of them was a testament to Tony's loving guidance and the values he instilled.

Professionally, Tony was the owner of Tony's Tire and Brake Service LLC. His work ethic and integrity were evident in every interaction, and his business thrived because of it.

Tony's passion for life was paralleled by his love for riding and working on his Harley Davidson. His eyes would light up with joy as he spoke about his adventures on the open road, especially during Bike Week, which he eagerly attended with friends and family. These moments were not just hobbies but a significant part of who he was—a man who cherished freedom and the joy of the journey.

Described by those who knew him as friendly, loving, and selfless, Tony's presence was a source of comfort and happiness to all. He had a natural ability to make others feel valued, and his generosity knew no bounds. Tony's greatest achievement, as he would proudly proclaim, was his daughter Haley Bugg, and anything that involved his beloved bike.

As we bid farewell to Tony C. Burnett, we celebrate a life well-lived—a life filled with passion, kindness, and an enduring love for family and friends. His spirit will continue to guide us, and his memory will forever be a beacon of the love and joy he brought into this world.

In honoring Tony's life, we remember a man who was not just the heart of his family but also a pillar in his community. His absence will be felt by many, but the legacy of his warmth and generosity will continue to inspire those who were fortunate enough to know him.
